Heartbroken Donegal father releases statement after 3 children found dead in Dublin

The Donegal father of the three children who were discovered in their home in the south Dublin Friday has urged parents to cuddle and spend time with their children.

A message was issued this morning by An Garda Siochana on behalf of their father Andrew McGinley.

“There is only devastation, grief and anguish. Every breath is a struggle,”

That’s the opening line from the father of three children who lost their lives in Dublin last week as he urges parents to cherish their children.

“To all parents, cuddle your children whenever you get a chance, tell them how much you love them as often as you can, spend every spare minute with them reading, playing and enjoying their wonderfulness.”

Its after the discovery of the bodies Conor, Darragh and Carla McGinley were discovered in their home in Newcastle last week.

The three siblings, aged 9, 7 and 3, were found dead on Friday evening and Gardaí are currently investigating the “unexplained circumstances” surrounding their deaths.

Gardaí believe the children were drugged, possibly with a sedative, before being suffocated.

The children’s mother, Deirdre Morley who is a nurse was found by a taxi-driver in a disorientated condition near her house on Friday evening.

Gardaí say they are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident, but no arrests have been made.

Andrew McGinley concluded the statement claiming that “the future has now become our enemy but we will battle it every day to keep the memory of Conor, Darragh and Carla alive”
